Jingle Ball / Not So Everyday Life

“We’ll Remember This Night When We’re Old and Gray…”

“…Cause in the future these will be the
GOOD OL’ DAYS!”

Even though those lyrics are off their last album #3, they still ring true whenever I’m with Glen, Mark, and Danny aka The Script. You pretty much have to be living under a rock if you’ve never heard of them (the biggest hits in the U.S. were “Breakeven” and “Hall of Fame” featuring  Will.i.Am), but I’ve been a fan of theirs for years.

I’ll admit that I did have a slight anxiety attack preparing for my interview with them in 2012. I was very new to this whole interviewing bands gig (I still have to pinch myself sometimes!), but they were so genuine when we met and during our conversation that it quickly felt like I was hanging out with friends I’ve known for years, and it’s still one of my top 5 favorite interviews to this day.

Throwback to November 2012!

Throwback to our first meeting in November 2012!

Fast forward more than two years and, believe it or not, my friendship with The Script is still going strong! I was so happy the stars aligned (thanks in large part to my friend Skeery) and I was able to catch them in Miami for their last show of 2014. I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to kick off Jingle Ball weekend and wrap up another great year than with these guys and their crew.

Their latest release No Sound Without Silence is doing very well and the first single “Superheroes” is yet another anthem of empowerment that leaves me with goosebumps every time I hear it. I’ve seen them perform four times and each time I catch myself closing my eyes and really feeling the music because every lyric is so heartfelt and real.

Aside from the music, they really put on one hell of a show. It’s obvious 2014 was the year of the selfie, so Skeery and I accepted the challenge to get one with each of the guys, and it resulted in some of my favorite concert photos– EVER! You can see photos from the show by clicking here, but here are my personal photos 🙂

Make love to the camera, Danny. (That security guard in the background doesn’t look happy about him running through the crowd.)

Hey Glen, let’s see if you can still play without missing a beat while we take a photo of you pointing at the camera 😉

Oh hey, Mark. Let’s just have a quick chat about life.

I always say that in 20 years I’m going to look back at nights like this and tell my children about all the incredible people I met on this journey. The Script is responsible for some of the best nights I’ve had on this unique “tour” that is my life. It’s so interesting meeting people from different cultures (especially if they tour around the world every year) because they really do give you a new outlook on life outside of the small bubble you live in. I say small bubble because the world is HUGE, but one thing is certain– MUSIC UNITES PEOPLE. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to share one-on-one time with some of the artists I admire and be able to laugh with them as we get to know each other and share life stories with them over a drink.

Speaking of laughs, we were walking through the lobby of the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach when we came across the photos of every musician performing at the venue over the next few weeks. The band’s photos were (thankfully) low enough for me to reach, so Danny, Noa and I grabbed their photos off the wall and it produced what I think it the most epic photo in the history of band photos.

Noa, Danny (The Script’s lead singer) and I— EPIC!
